Saturday's shoot at Heinz Field will feature over a dozen Steelers players as extras, with thousands of other extras being recruited to fill the stands. The scenes being shot tomorrow are of a high school football game featuring the Gotham Rogues. Here's what Ben Roethlisberger had to say about the shoot.
"From what I've heard, it's going to be like a pre-game, warming-up type thing. I don't know the whole concept. There's a Gotham team, a football game. We'll be wearing uniforms. It will be fun."
Other Steelers players participating in the shoot are Hines Ward, Troy Polamalu, Maurkice Pouncey, Willie Colon, Mike Wallace, Heath Miller, Aaron Smith, Ryan Clark, James Farrior and Casey Hampton. Executive producer Thomas Tull is also a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers ownership group, and is said to be instrumental in bringing the production to Pittsburgh.
